03/08/2003 Archived Entry: "Big Day: The Aftermath"

Yes, indeed Thursday was the big day. So big in fact, that it absorbed the day formerly known as Friday. That's right all you inhabitants of Krinland...Friday is dead! Long live Thuriday!

Anyway, Thursday was the usual stuff. Work, class, toy shopping. BUT they had the new Daemonhunters (and yes, that it spelled correctly, shame on you for not knowing limey English!) codex and models. The new Grey Knights just r0x your s0x, I tell ya! Gorgeous.

Then on Thuriday, I woke up late for reasons still unexplained, but the coughing and sneezing fits prompted me to say "Ya know, a half day would be good...." so I left work about noon or so. I then stopped to pick up some more spray primer (two cans) and decided to clear out the local toy store's supply of Grey Knights. I gave people 24 hours to claim some for their own...I feel no pity....hehehehehe. They'll probably have more soon...and hopefully in blister form so I can bulk up the five squads I already have. Those terminators....mmmmmmmmmmm.....

Anyway, I woke up this morning after a dream that I don't know how to describe...it wasn't a bad dream in and of itself, but...I don't know. Very confusing. I then went to paint for an hour or so and then fell back asleep for a few more hours. Then woke up and painted till I started my standard convos with friends and decided to start this entry.

I am quite pleased with the progress on the Chaos Predator. If I could ever sit down and focus on it, would probably finish it in short order. It's truly staggering when I stop and look at what I have primered to paint. See, I noticed that I would lose interest in a project, then switch to something else and be real into it, then falter and go back to something else. Only problem was I didn't have much primered so my options were limited. As part of my new policy to combat my attention deficit (inability to focus on a big project at any rate), I'm trying to have lots of different models ready for me to paint in case I get bored. Problem is, primering is highly dependent on the weather so I tend to prepare models to be primered (as that can be done by the computer) and then primer when the weather is good. This has lead to about 200 models being READY to paint and about six actually BEING painted. So I'll have to remedy that after tomorrow, I think I'll have enough ready after tomorrow to be good for a long time.

If any of the above is incorrect, it's Ally's fault...so blame her. Toodles and Noodles!
